Sewer & Storm Water Info 

 

The Village of Kenmore is committed to maintaining and improving our infrastructure.  We've invested millions of dollars on capital improvements to our water and sewer system.  Water Main Replacement Projects replace old water lines.  Street Improvement Projects address the both water and sewer lines, and Sewer lining projects address cracks in our sewer lines.

 

Our infrastructure is comprised of 3 main pieces:  Water lines which bring clean water to your home, Storm Water lines which take away clean water such as rain water from your property, and Sewer lines, which take away dirty water, such as toilet water.

 

The sewer-related capital improvement projects have been implemented to help reduce Inflow and Infiltration (I&I) into our system.  I&I happens when excess clean (storm) water gets into our sewer lines through holes, cracks and joint failures.  It can also happen when downspouts, bubblers, sump pumps and laterals (located on private property) are not properly connected to our system. 

 

To help us to correct I&I attributed to connections on private property, Smoke Testing  will take place on some of our streets. This work will be performed by CoreVIS.  As part of our Consent Order with the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC), we are required to inspect properties from the right of way and identify homes which may be inadvertently contributing to inflow and infiltration (I&I) into our system.  Smoke testing will help to identify any problems.

 

You can help by checking your downspouts and sump pumps to make sure they are properly connected. For more information, please check the diagram and links below.

STORAGE AND PLACEMENT OF GARBAGE 
GENERAL INFORMATION

The intent of recent legislation is to eliminate possible food sources for rats and other animals, thereby promoting health and safety throughout the Kenmore community.

The Kenmore Municipal Code requires that garbage be placed in a Village-approved tote.  All garbage placed at the curb must be in a tote with the lid closed.

 

OUTSIDE STORAGE OF GARBAGE:  All garbage stored outside must be placed in the black garbage tote with the lid down.  

 

YARD WASTE:  Yard waste (grass clippings, branches, etc.) may be placed at the curb in CLEAR plastic bags or open containers, or bundled. Opaque (including black and green bags) bags CANNOT be used. 

 

RECYCLABLES:  The Village will pick up recyclables, large trash (furniture, etc) and white items.  Recyclables must be placed in the Recycle Tote (black with a green lid).  Recycle collection takes place every other week (see schedule).

 

ELECTRONIC WASTE (E-Waste):  E-Waste (ex:  TVs, computers, monitors, et al) are NOT collected.

 

RESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS - PLACEMENT OF GARBAGE:  Garbage is to be placed at the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. on the morning of collection and no earlier than 4:00 p.m. on the day preceding garbage pickup in residential districts.

 

Elderly or disabled persons, who cannot move a garbage tote and has no one to assist him/her, may contact the Department of Public Works to request assistance.  If the DPW verifies that the person cannot move a garbage can, the DPW will bring the can to and from the curb.
